Message from West MS Principal

Welcome Message from Dr. Parker, West Middle School Principal

It is an honor to serve the Westside community as the Principal of West Middle School. This is my seventh year at the helm of our beloved school, which is at the center of so much Westside history.  Preparing students for the demands of high school and the world of work and learning beyond high school is our focus.  We believe the keys to a learner’s success unlock future opportunities for our students.  Our goal is for our students to use foundational learning principles independently and apply them as citizens of the world. This foundation is built upon a rigorous core curriculum, a variety of extracurricular activities, cultural acceptance, and trusting relationships.  We strive to provide your children with an exceptional and distinctive educational experience.

We are committed to preparing your children for success. We are grateful and honored to be a part of your children's educational journey. We consider you part of our team and welcome your feedback and participation. We invite you to come and talk to us and take a tour of our historic school. Thank you for inquiring about West Middle School. 

If I can be of further assistance, please contact me at or by phone 719-328-3900.


Dr. Shalah Parker, Principal
